Programme Description

The Boehringer Ingelheim Fonds travel grants are aimed at doctoral, MD and post-doctoral students who pursue experimental projects in basic biomedical research and who wish to learn methods relevant to their current research. To this end, the grant finances the participation in practical training courses or short-term research stays in other laboratories. The Travel Grants programme is open to all Europeans and to non-Europeans working in Europe to go to institutes or courses worldwide. Non-Europeans working outside Europe can apply for stays in Europe. Travel grants are awarded for up to three months and encompass a flat-rate contribution which may cover the expenses for travel, lodging, and course fees.
